Adolfo Mendonça will present in two major international jazz conferences
Adolfo Mendonça will be presenting at confrences of the International Society of Jazz Arrangers and Composers (ISJAC), USA, and the University of Edinburgh (Scotland).
In March 20th, he will present at ISJAC's Uncharted Territory a comparative analysis between jazz and choro, which will feature similarities and contrasts between the two genres and the music of interculturally influenced musicians, such as Garoto and K-ximbinho. In late June, he will be presenting at Documenting Jazz, organized this year by the world top-20 University of Edinburgh, where he will discuss an in-depth analysis of a Lyle Mays' composition and his improvisation style.
"Both are important conferences, since ISJAC had as members Chick Corea and Randy Brecker in addition to professors from some of the best universities in the world, while Documenting Jazz will feature researches, jazz historians and journalists from all the world, and it's held by one of the greatest universities in the world".
Due to covid-19, the typically in-person activities will be held online, which, according to Adolfo allow "anyone in the world to be there using their computers at home".
